Buren...from windmills to chocolates...

Take a walk with us through the beautiful, fortressed city of Buren in Holland...

Molenhuis - anno 1649



My Dutchman resting for a moment to take in the view from the windmill...


Windmill - Prince of Orange - anno 1716...


New built houses in old style...


Authentic old houses...


Royal Orphanage - anno 1612...




Walking in the Kerkstraat...


...with a happy surprise of a chocolate shop with handmade bonbons...



...and home to enjoy them with a cup of coffee and remembering an enjoyable walk in a beautiful place...

  1. Bedankt voor deze mooie rondleiding door Buren. Ik blijf genieten van dat stadje. Die laatste twee foto's zijn even iets minder voor mij ;)

  2. Just so beautiful. I love the gates in the first two pictures, and the walk in the Kerkstraat. The latter looks right out of a children's story.

  3. Beautiful pictures Heidi. I love these kinds of posts from around the globe. More restful than walking around our neighborhoods where anything old is torn down.

  7. That was a beautiful walk. I hope Jos didn't eat any of the chocolates since chocolate taste like salt to him. They would be wasted.
    Love you, Mom

  9. I am impressed that the chocolates made it home from the shop. I am sure they would have been gone way before home if I had bought them! LOL!
